Supernatural 5x10 'Abandon All Hope'  
.... because of course, 'before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure, abandon all hope ye who enter here'.

Did I say that I LOVE that they stole the title from Dante's Inferno? Now I'm nostalgic of my high school days when I'd do that. *sigh* Well, hey, I always said Italian literature > you, at least until the 70s.

1. Okay, so, this show is becoming Good Omens, but I'm not caring much. Maybe I just like the idea of everything being a huge, huge crossover.

2. That said, Crowley is my new love. Apart from being taken straaaight from the book complete with looks, intelligence, English accent, making deals on highways, fancy house and not wanting to help the devil, HE GOT ME SOME GAY ACTION. WELL, FINE, THE DUDE WASN'T EXACTLY WHAT I'D HAVE GONE FORE BUT STILL. Also I <33 that he totally pwned Sam when he was like 'maybe you need ammo' and that he was like MORONS!!! all the time.

2b. Which brings me to, THERE NEEDS TO BE BOBBY AND CROWLEY FIC ASAP WHERE BOBBY CALLS THEM IDJTS AND CROWLEY CALLS THEM MORONS. If no one writes it I fucking will, sometime in the next four centuries.

3. SAM ALWAYS SAY NO TO LUCIFER.

4. And Dean will always be awesome. Lame pick up lines included.

5. CASTIEL HAVING THE DRINKING CONTEST WITH ELLEN AND JO = NEW FAVORITE SCENE LIKE EVER. AND HE DOESN'T EVEN GET DRUNK. HE DOESN'T EVEN GET DRUNK. AND WITH THAT ADORABLE FACE OMG.

6. Also he's a total voyeur. When he spied on Crowley and telling Dean at the phone, omglol a+++++++. And hanging out with Jo and Ellen, awww.

7. Bobby wasn't in there much but he was awesome.

Except when he burned the picture at the end. WHAT THE FUCK. WHY.

8. Picture talking: I teared up. I <333 it from Bobby saying they were drinking his beer so just shut the fuck up to Cas' face and Dean's face and everything else and just, ;______________;. Though one would believe that Bobby would have a color camera... or maybe not.

9. Okay, I'm totally dancing around this, but. The only thing I have to say about the deaths is:

;_________________________________;

Because. Really. Jo never was my favorite character but I liked her just fine and Ellen was my favorite female character and I ♥ed them both and THEY KILLED THEM AND I WAS CRYING DAMMIT. But then they did it in such a poignant way and... hi. Hear my heart being ripped out into tiny little pieces. I just... if I read some bashing Jo comment I swear I'll flip. I. Will. Flip. When Ellen stayed with her and Jo was like 'treat me like an adult for once' I... just... ;_________; and while I never shipped Dean/Jo THOSE TWO KISSES KILLED ME. THE FOREHEAD ONE ESPECIALLY BUT the second too. Jesus. ;____________; and at least they went out in a badass way. But. Still. ;_________; now all the Roadhouse crew is dead and I'm.. like.. no. Argh, I loved the Roadhouse.

Whatever. Let's go on before I start bawling again and end up late for the only class I have.

10. Mark Pellegrino, be Lucifer forever and ever. Amen. I love how he's being gentle and alien and evil as fuck all at once and that he digs on his own and that he doesn't really have minions and then in the end he'll just screw them all. Also poor Nick, he's falling apart. Aw. ;__;

11. DEAR CASTIEL, BE EVEN MORE HOT GETTING TRAPPED IN RINGS OF FIRE MOAR OFTEN.

Duh. I. Died. I loved their confrontation and I loved the tones of it and that they were sorta speaking at an even level and _izu_ and lasamy can confirm that I totally called the whole thing he put on Meg. I loved that he was obvs. scared in the beginning but then got calmer and then he totally pwned Meg. I don't like that he can't burn demons out anymore though, the more power he loses the more he gets close to f!Cas, but THEN HE USED MEG AS A BRIDGE AND I SQUEED.

Er. See. The actress playing Meg in S1 had the same face of a friend of mine. Trufax. So for me Meg = MAJOR CREEPS and sincerely even if she changed her face I never was too attached to the character so CAS PWNING HER AND USING HER AS A BRIDGE HAD ME SQUEEING. Sorry. I swear I usually am more objective and she was an awesome character. She just crept me out for years.

12. Cas doing the catwalk = why not moar often, show? Just sayin'.

13. Also Dean, if you call him huggy teddy bear, CAN SOMEONE GIVE THE ANGEL A HUG ONE OF THESE YEARS? Thanks.

14. I think I need to re-watch it because I'm sure I missed a hell of a lot of stuff while flailing and sobbing my eyes out, but still. Loved it. Even if Ben Edlund = evil. Can he and Jeremy Carver write an ep together? Y/y?

15. I realizes I barely said anything about Dean and Sam which I guess is weird but this ep I just felt like everyone else was getting the spotlight, y'know? I mean. I lovedlovedloved their exchange at Bobby's with the beer and the ending scene with Lucifer and pretty much everything else they did (including being totally pwned by Crowley lololol win) but I just felt like the focus was more on Jo/Ellen/Lucifer/sort-of-Cas this round, so I probably would have more to say if I re-watched it.

16. Also when Bobby was like 'battle of Carthage' I was like 'when did this show became about ancient history?' and then I realized that it was a Carthage in the US. *headdesk*

17. Okay, I answered some reviews. Now I'll be running to class because it's the one where if you don't get there an hour before you don't get to sit, then I'll get back and answer the other reviews and watch my vampire porn. Which is going on hiatus too. WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT THE VAMPIRE PORN AND SPN. Maybe catch up on other shows, duh.

Did I already say that quoting Dante = win? ;)

"Also I <33 that he totally pwned Sam when he was like 'maybe you need ammo' and that he was like MORONS!!! all the time."

Man, I freaking love Crowley too. "HOW 'BOUT YA DON'T MISS, MOROOOOONNNNNS????!??!?" XD I'm like 70% finished Good Omens; I was hoping to have it done before this ep, but it didn't happen. That's alright, I'll finish it over Christmas, or on my study breaks during exams. I'll probably enjoy it more if I'm not rushing anyway. But at least I had read enough of it to totally get that SPN!Crowley = GO!Crowley. =D Also, the Bobby-Crowley Idjits/Morons fic totally needs to exist. XD

"Also he's a total voyeur. When he spied on Crowley and telling Dean at the phone, omglol a+++++++. And hanging out with Jo and Ellen, awww."

THIS. ALL OF THIS. Also, this can never be posted enough:


"Except when he burned the picture at the end. WHAT THE FUCK. WHY."

The only logic I can make out of that is that since there was nothing of Ellen and Jo left to bury (or salt&burn), it was a sort of substitute funeral ceremony for them. I know, at first I was like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!?!?" but having time to think about it, that's the only thing that makes sense to me.

"and while I never shipped Dean/Jo THOSE TWO KISSES KILLED ME. THE FOREHEAD ONE ESPECIALLY BUT the second too."

I've watched the episode twice now, and both times I was gutted. In fact, the second time was probably worse. The forehead kiss was perfect, and the second one as well. I think it was a nice nod to the Dean/Jo shippers without being over the top. I never really shipped Dean/Jo, but I'm one of the few that always loved Jo, so I was basically bawling from the minute she was attacked to the explosion. Oh God, and it was all sad enough with Ellen staying, but then she had to have that moment of realization that her child is dead, and it was just heartbreak on top of heartbreak. I literally don't think I've ever cried so hard at SPN ever. I'm crying typing this.

I can't get over how excellent Mark is at playing Lucifer. Like, HE IS PERFECT. And Misha completely *~*dazzled*~* me with his eyes sparkling in the fire light. And then using Meg as a bridge, I DIED. XD So basically the checklist is: 1) Cas needs to be around fire more often; 2) he needs to pwn people by having an in-your-face, strange sexual tension moment first; and 3) NEEDS HUGS. *VOLUNTEERS FOR THE LAST PART*

Heh, I totally understand on forgetting to talk about the boys. They were seriously an afterthought in this episode. Actually (this is terrible to say), but I almost wish one of them got injured in some way so it didn't feel like the heroes got off scot-free. Not like, seriously injured, but a gash in the leg or something. I don't know, I think this is just the grief for Ellen and Jo talking. v_v

Crowley was so made OF WIN. Exactly like GO!Crowley, lol, but I ♥ him sfm. And yeah, you need to appreciate it fully instead of rushing it, I agree. XDD I love that book sfm. And if no one does it fuck it, I am writing that fic. It's too good to pass.

CAS. CAS. CAS. YOU AND YOUR CREEPY SELF WATCHING M/M KISSING. ILU NEVER CHANGE TOO MUCH. ;)

You have a great point there. And it makes easier to accept it. But.. argh. I still... IT BREAKS ME ALMOST AS MUCH AS THEM DYING DID ARGH ;_________;

I don't think I can watch at least the second part anytime soon again. I'd cry all over again God ;____; Dean/Jo was never my ship either but at that forehead kiss I DIED DAMMIT. I had figured that Ellen would just let her do her thing and then probably die doing something suicidal but when I realized she was going to stay I lost it. I think that on the chat (I was watching it with two friends) I went like 'if I hear some Jo bashing after this I'm killing someone' in capslock or something, argh. I'll miss them so fucking much dammit. And yeah I don't think that it happened to me either as much, mostly because when I started watching it was early S3 and I was spoiled for S1/S2 (so er, I probably just sniffed when John died even if he was my favorite character because I was expecting it and then I cried at Ash because that was the only thing I wasn't spoiled for lol) and I had ended up being spoiled for the S3 finale too anyway. So this was the first time someone major died while I was watching regularly and.... ARGH. ;__;

Mark is excellent. Indeed. He's so good I can't even fathom it.

MISHA DAZZLES SO MUCH IT ISN'T EVEN FUNNY. HIS EYES DAMMIT. Totally my favorite pair after His Prettiness' and Roger Taylor's, lol. Using Meg as a bridge gained moar a++++s from me because me and Meg never were on good terms but yeah. That.

AND YES EVERYTHING ON YOUR CHECKLIST. AFTER YOU'RE DONE WITH THE HUGGING I'LL HAVE A GO AT IT.

LOL, this ep they really weren't around much. I feel guilty for barely paying attention to them but basically the first half they were there in order for Crowley to pwn them and the latter half was more Ellen/Jo/Cas centered so well, ha, not angsting about that much. I gush about them every other week, this time I'll just pass. XD ;) And argh. GRIEF.

"I had figured that Ellen would just let her do her thing and then probably die doing something suicidal but when I realized she was going to stay I lost it."

YES!! I don't know why it never occurred to me that Ellen would stay. She's a mother and Jo is her child, for God's sakes. It would've been ridiculous if she HAD left her! But at the time, you don't think of these things... so yeah, when she stayed, I lost it too. ;___;

"AFTER YOU'RE DONE WITH THE HUGGING I'LL HAVE A GO AT IT."

OKAY, BUT YOU CAN JOIN TOO! GROUP HUGZZZZZ!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
